“When I put stuff in my bag earlier in the day I was thinking oh…sad but true, it is time to retire this LeCarre and start a new one…just when it was getting good and broken in and filled with everything from my time in Mexico this summer to the beginning of a new school year and all the meetings in between.”
Kim from the blog Consider the Lilies sent me this and it got me to thinking about my own transitions from one notebook or journal to the next. When I start to get close to the end of a book, I start to get anxious – I want to finish it and move into the next one which will most certainly contain experiences even more interesting that the one I am currently working on – though this one included Hurricane Irene, the East Coast Earthquake, camping through a thunder & lightning storm, my return to the Rhythm Revival, applying (and receiving!) a local artist residency… with all of these things happening in the latter part of this year, I can’t imagine what I will experience next!
How do you feel about transitioning from one book to the next? Is there anything special that you do to “out with the old and in with the new?”
